Walking and....

Added 11 Mar 2014
Walking the Inca Trail

When you choose an Explore walking holiday you’re not just choosing a walking holiday! Most of our adventures on foot combine the walking with other activities to make sure you really get the most out of the country you’re visiting.

Walking and…gastronomy

Whether it’s walking between vineyards for wine tastings, spending your days exploring on foot and your nights sampling local delicacies or combining walking, wine and food into one unforgettable adventure, walking and gastronomy complement each other perfectly.
Experience it on: Tuscany: Flavours of Garfagnana, Walking in Puglia and BascilicataCape Town, Walking and WinelandsWalks and Wine Tasting and Wine, Walks and Tapas.

Cape Town

Walking and…history

There is so much to learn and discover across the world and getting out on foot is a great way to experience the history of a country. On your walking holiday you could:
• Walk between the Cathar Castles of Southern France
• Trek parts of the Camino de Santiago, the classic Pilgrimage route and discover medieval towns and stunning cathedrals 
• Check out the historical Siena and Florence, two of Italy’s of most beautiful cities  
• Discover Cuba’s revolutionary history on a walking holiday which includes a trek to Castro’s secret jungle hideout
Turkey is full of ancient Greek and Roman sites and you’ll have the opportunity to learn about their history on this trekking trip 

Walking and…world wonders
Our planet is full of iconic sites to see and explore and there is no better way to get up close to them than on foot. Trek to the rock-hewn ancient city of Petra, along China’s epic Great Wall, to Colombia's lost city of Ciudad Perdida or follow in the footsteps of the Incas to the mysterious citadel of Machu Picchu.

Or try: Inca Trail Trek, High Trail of the Incas or Heights of Machu Picchu.

Walking and…wildlife

There’s nothing like being out on foot when it comes to really getting up close and personal with the world. And there’s no better way to experience wildlife than up close and personal. Mix the two and combine walking with:
Whale-watching in the Azores 
• Visiting wildlife sanctuaries to see lemurs and more while trekking through Madagascar 
• Observing elk, bison and other wildlife in North America’s National Parks


Walking and…winter
Okay, so ‘winter’ in itself may not be an activity, but when the season, namely the snow which comes along with it, is combined with a walking holiday you’re in for a treat - snow-shoeing! If you’ve never done it before, all you have to do is strap the snow-shoes to your regular walking boots and go – it’s that easy. You’ll be able to trek to areas which were previously unreachable and the snowy landscapes will unfold before you.

Try it on: Tuscan Winter Walks and Snowshoeing and Snowshoeing in the Picos de Europa

Walking and…village/tribal life

Get to the heart of a country and discover its lifeblood – the people. On these trips you’ll trek from village to village or meet and stay with remote tribes. On foot is the best – and sometimes the only – way to interact with local people still living traditional lifestyles.

Experience it on: Ladakh Village TrailsGhana and Togo on FootBurma Hilltribe TrekHilltribes of the North or Sahara Desert Trek and Atlas

Walking and…volcanoes

Give your walking holiday an added dimension with walks on and around volcanoes. Hike the spectacular north face of Mount Etna in Sicily and witness Stromboli, one of the world’s most active volcanoes. Not forgetting Mount Teide in Tenerife and the ultimate volcano trek – Mount Kilimanjaro.
